You Let Me In.jpgSpine-tingling, chilling, and utterly compulsive, YOU LET ME IN is the stunning new novel from Richard & Judy Book Club author, Lucy Clarke

Nothing has felt right since Elle rented out her house . . .


There’s a new coldness. A shift in the atmosphere. The prickling feeling that someone is watching her every move from the shadows.


Maybe it’s all in Elle’s mind? She’s a writer – her imagination, after all, is her strength. And yet every threat seems personal. As if someone has discovered the secrets that keep her awake at night.


As fear and paranoia close in, Elle’s own home becomes a prison. Someone is unlocking her past – and she’s given them the key…


This was, for me, a one sitting read.  I know it’s a cliche but I couldn’t put it down.

Throughout the book there is an underlying note of tension which puts the reader on edge, and the author cleverly pulls you down into the depths of Elle’s confusion and paranoia, such that I was never comfortable; always second guessing every interaction.

This misdirection and suspicion, driven by a well paced narrative, and aligned with flawed, yet grounded characters, combine to produce a chilling, yet completely enjoyable read.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
